& Book Company

Innovative Publisher of Quality Books by Creative Authors

Parson's Porch & Book Publishing is a book publishing company with a double focus.  We focus on the needs of creative writers who need a professional publisher to turn their words into books, & we also focus on the needs of others by turning their books into bread by sharing our profits with those who are homeless and displaced by meeting their basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and safety.

Down on the Farm in Georgia

 is a poetic memoir. I lived on the farm from birth

until my last two years of college.

Everything since is memory.

              When a parent tells a child a story, 

                       Both become one,

                                listening together—

To the wisdom of the ages.


The faithful telling of past stories links past and present,

creating a new future. The gift of family is experienced 

in each new telling. I hope this memoir will inspire you

to tell and preserve your own family stories.


Dwayne Cole and his wife, Beth, met while studying for the Master of Divinity degree at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
